Synopsis for "The Battle of Fabletown"
The army of Wooden Soldiers reached Fabletown. The fables start firing off their guns from behind the barriers, though the bullets didn't seem to have much effect. Snow watched from the Woodlands balcony with Flycatcher, who relayed her orders through walky-talky to Prince Charming. It wasn't long before the barriers fell and Bullfinch Street was overrun by the wooden army. Prince Charming pulled everyone back. Snow waited until every last enemy soldier had stepped onto their turf, so as to keep the Mundys from noticing any more than they already have, then she gave the go ahead to the grenadiers. The flying Farm animals unloaded their payload on the mass of black suits and wooden limbs below, softening them up, but not enough to stop their advance. Next, Snow White called in Fabletown's big brawlers, like Hobbes in his goblin form, and Weyland Smith. Even Boy Blue, though small in size, jumped in the fray wielding the powerful Vorpal Blade. Meanwhile, the other Fables retreated to the Woodland courtyard. The soldiers who weren't currently engaged followed after them. But when they got close, the sandbags around the front gate were pulled away to reveal a set of large cannons pointed in their direction.
Weyland Smith ducks the splintered remains flying overhead. As the dust settles, Weyland triumphantly gloats to the "toy soldiers" that they didn't have any fight left in them. They respond by shooting him several times in the back. Boy Blue starts to call for a medic, when a bullet pierces through his chest.
Inside, Dr. Swineheart has converted the Woodlands main office into a hospital for those who have been wounded in the fight. Off to the side was a makeshift mortuary for Fables that have fallen in battle. Pinocchio demands to be let outside, but Jack Horner holds him back.
As soon as the heavy fighters started to lose their ground, Snow ordered the car horn to be sounded. The signal was for the big guys to retreat so that Clara the raven can do her stuff. Not all manage to make it safely, as Papa and Mama bear see their son, Boo, get gunned down as he tries to clear the street. Up above, Clara unleashes her flames down on the surprised invaders. Their wood bodies catch fire quickly as they realize the fate that has befallen them. Pinocchio looks on as the soldiers are set ablaze and immediately panics. He yells at Jack to warn Snow White what she's done. For he knew better than any of them that, yes, wood burns, but not quickly. All she did was create a self-aware walking inferno.
Out in the middle of the blaze, the soldier army decide that though they're irrevocably doomed, it would be fun to at least take as many "meatheads" with them as they can...
